July 19 2005 By virtueonline CT: Bishop's actions condemned around world...Panel of Reference...ECUSA news...

If you had any doubt about that, the actions of Bishop Andrew Smith in the Diocese of Connecticut confirmed it this past week. He, like his fellow revisionist bishops Smith is worse than a canonical fundamentalist. He twists the canons for his own purposes. These bishops care nothing for the 'faith once delivered to the saints,' only in their ecclesiastical power governed by General Convention resolutions, not Holy Scripture.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

THE ARCHBISHOP of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, said at the conclusion of the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Nottingham that most of his hopes for the ACC meeting had been met.

It was the Fourth Instrument of Unity doing its best to show everyone why it needs to continue to exist, (if indeed it does) and why it needs money from the North American church to stay afloat.

June 22 2005 By virtueonline NOTTINGHAM: Akinola...Americans and Canadians make their case

There has been considerable anger expressed by several orthodox organizations about the public exposure of the Canadian and ECUSA and the fawning attitude of Canon Kenneth Kearon, ACC secretary general in his praise of ECUSA, and there was a lot of rumbling and noise on Monday about the seating of both provinces as "observers" not "delegates" while seeming to be treated like delegates.

Thus spake a moderately orthodox bishop to a friend of mine this week.

The French army felt it could hide behind a so-called "Great Wall" of France, where the nation could feel secure. The wall failed the army. And if the Dennis Canon should go to a state Supreme Court or even higher there is every expectation that a revisionist bishop could lose.

But that is not the only crisis the C of E faces.
